Landed in Bangalore last night. We were at Hastings' wedding reception when he appeared --- the same self, capped by the same Adidas. It was a real pleasure seeing him after so many months, years. Today, Rupam and I met up with him at Maharaja. Rupam had Habul in tow. It was Layout revisited! The same prodigal Andu with touches of the huge city he left - -- left on him. One could see the raw pleasure he was experiencing of being back in the city where he started off and back with old friends. And in characteristic Andu fashion we were regaled with tales of the rich and famous and of things rare and unimaginable.
